This project was completed in accordance with the 1998 Standard for Terrestrial Ecosystem Mapping in B.C. and the 2000 Standard for Terrestrial Ecosystem Mapping Digital Data Capture. The project files available include project reports, expanded legends, map legends, non-spatial polygon attribute databases, ArcInfo spatial data, and field data. The study area covers the following TRIM mapsheets: 82L.024, 82L.034, 82L.023. It is situated in the North Okanagan Basin (NOB)Ecosection and includes the Okanagan Very Dry, Hot Interior Douglas-fir (IDFxh1) biogeoclimatic subzone variant. Wildlife Habitat Ratings (WHR) were developed for the following species: great basin spadefoot toad (Spea intermontana), Western rattlesnake (Crotalus viridis), gopher snake (Pituophis catenifer ssp. deserticola), Western screech-owl (Otus kennicottii ssp. macfarlanei), long-billed curlew (Numenius americanus), yellow-breasted chat (Icteria virens), Brewer's sparrow (Spizella breweri ssp. breweri), grasshopper sparrow (Ammodramus savannarum), Swainson's hawk (Buteo swainsonii), and badger (Taxidea taxus).
